Artist Profile

Valerie
Dicker

Born 1986, Perth, Western Australia

UK based artist Simon Claridge has garnered international acclaim for his fine art interpretations of iconic figures on silkscreen, dappled with his now signature diamond dust finish.

After graduating with a degree in fine art, Simon began working at an art gallery in Windsor. Each night, he painted feverishly, consumed by the dream of one day having his own work hanging on the walls. One morning, he mischievously replaced the window display with his own pieces. By lunchtime, he’d sold all of them and never had to work in a gallery again. Over the years, Simon has garnered the attention of celebrities such as LA stylist Rachel Zoe and fashion designer Henry Holland. In addition, he has enjoyed commissions from companies including Alfa Romeo.

Blurring the lines between fantasy and reality, Simon’s work captures the female form in all its splendour. His portfolio showcases a selection of cultural icons from the worlds of fashion, modelling and music. As a figurative artist, he has made it his raison d’être to capture the images that strike a chord with his wider audience. Each piece is meticulously considered and crafted to suspend time and evoke a “tangible feeling” from onlookers.

For his most recent collection, Diamond Dust, Simon has taken iconic images from the hallowed archives of legendary English photographer Terry O’Neill and translated them into diamond dust silkscreen prints for the first time in history.
